“Best Ice Cream at Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

By far the best ice cream at the beach. Old fashioned ice cream sodas, banana splits and sundaes. This was our first visit there after passing it by in previous years, due to long lines. But the service was friendly and efficient and the wait wasn't as long as it would appear. A great stop for the family for a late night "royal" treat. Highly recommended.

“Outstanding, second to none!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Royal Treat has easily become my family's favorite spot for ice cream. We have been going here for several years. First off, the ice cream is simply wonderful. Their single scoop portion is huge, typically there's no need to get a double scoop. And despite what some of the negative reviews state, it is very reasonably priced. Yes, you'll pay more since you're at the beach. However, it is WAY cheaper than the Ice Cream Store. They have a free ice water dispenser, which is a nice touch. The lines move very quickly as they typically have six or so servers once you get up to the countertop. Lastly, it has an outstanding old-fashioned atmosphere. Highly recommend!

“Old Fashioned Ice Cream Shoppe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

I went there with my family for ice cream sundaes. I highly recommend going during an off hour because this place is so awesome that it typically has long lines out the door. The staff moves as quickly as they can and are very friendly. Fair prices, plenty of seating and old tyme styling. Great time.
